Hidehito Aoki was a Japanese composer and sound designer from Chiba, Japan. He started working at Atlus in 1989 as a sound designer, and he ended up working on music and sound effects instead, most notably working on several titles in the popular Megami Tensei series. He even paid a visit to Abbey Road Studios together with Tsukasa Masuko during the production of Shin Megami Tensei II. Hidehito left Atlus in 2001 and then worked for Sony Computer Entertainment. Unfortunately, while he was on his way to a business trip in 2002, he was driving on an ice-covered mountain, in which his car lost control and he ended up falling to his death.

Music Development


Wacky Races was the only NES game that Hidehito composed. He wrote the music in assembly using Tsukasa Masuko's sound driver. The composition in that game sounds like Paul Webb's.
